Lot Number: 52
Notes: Perched on a branch, head slightly tilted to the right. Beak with remnants of gilding. Plinth in the form of a tree stump (later?). Remarkably naturalistic reproduction of the plumage with meticulous surface detail. Possibly formerly part of a table clock. Comparable, for example, with a South German figurine clock of the period (circa 1580/90) in the form of a parrot in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna (inventory no. Kunstkammer, 6862)
